I am new to this app.. so far I just see the same people posting pet pictures, talking about pain and how it's awful, the crafty stuff they do, and just normal everyday stuff, that's ok. But I am gonna be honest with you. There are some days that are so f..n bad that I don't give a flying f..k what I have to do to get just 5 minutes without this horrendous pain.. so with that said.. I self medicate. And let me tell you it's wonderful!! Just to be without pain for 5 minutes,1 hour, 2 hours, 4 hours... you get the just of it. I take pain pills just like you all.. but if you add a little alcohol and some medical mj sometimes it's the best thing..cause it makes you forget the pain for a short while.. I'm not condoning or suggesting anyone should do this. I just want to know if anyone in this community does what I do to get rid of the pain.. funny thing.. I told my Dr. that I was self medicating. He said don't do that.. it could lead to death.. lol I looked at him and said " really., have you every read the pamphlets on the pain medicine you prescribe me?" He didn't say anything..
